critical thinking in a business decision

Project Description:

carl, the president of the company acquired by rpz marketing, has agreed to be interviewed by the business columnist of the local newspaper on the topic of the decision to sell the company to rpz. for this task, imagine that you are carl, preparing for this interview. the columnist has provided you with a list of questions (below) that you should be prepared to address. using your information about the case scenario from unit 1, as well as the short task that you wrote in the last unit, respond to the following interview questions as you believe carl would respond. keep in mind that the story that results from this interview will be featured in the business section of the local newspaper, and that you continue to serve as one of the division heads of the new, combined company.
how would you describe your company's competitive situation prior to the acquisition?
when you were faced with this situation, what did you see as the most important facts that you needed to address?
what assumptions did you make about your customers?
what alternative approaches did you consider, and how did you assess the advantages and disadvantages of each?
how did you present the decision to sell to your board of directors?

your interview responses should demonstrate a logical consideration of the case, and the likely assumptions and concerns of an executive like carl. write your responses in either first person or third person, as long as they are written in a style that you consider appropriate for a business executive communicating in a public forum. a complete task should be approximately 2–3 double-spaced pages.
